I first came across this anime long ago, back when Toonami was first kicking off. I admit, I actually kind of liked it. Mind you, anime wasn't a common thing stateside then, so I had little basis for what might be considered good or bad. At the time, it was giant robots, catgirls, and a main character with the voice of Tai from Digimon.
The fact this anime was even localized actually confounds
